Welcome to our blog. In addition to being hip to the latest trends in cyber communication, we will use this space to share with you some of our most memorable events and tales from the wild world of off-site catering.
Introducing: The Cart
There’s no telling where these wheels can go! In our ongoing effort to keep our bride and groom’s menus fresh and innovative, we are excited to introduce our “roving cart” series. Our cart can function as a do-it-yourself station with whimiscal desserts and specialty cocktail makings, or feature made to order chips and guacamole as a late night snack for departing guests.
Most recently we rolled out the cart at Rachel and Jonathan’s wedding reception as a sweet late night surprise for their guests. Locally produced, Leo Leo Gelato, was the perfect treat to top off their oh so romantic day.
The possibilities are endless:
• Bloody Mary Bar with assorted garnishes and spices
• Boardwalk Concession with fresh fruit, snack, gourmet popcorn
• Martini, Mimosa or Bellini Bar
• Late Night Guacamole and Salsa
• Gastro Pub and Beer Pairings
• Bourbon Bar with cigars and chocolate – the perfect gentleman’s lounge!
• DIY S’mores, Sundaes, or Hot Chocolate Bar
• Port Tasting with truffle and local cheese selection
We hope that our amazing clients will take this concept and give it their own “spin” too! Stay tuned to our blog and updated FaceBook page to see more fun wedding and event ideas.
May 8, Lawren+Jesse=Cool Country Affair
Lawren and Jesse had a very clear vision for their southern inspired wedding staged at a private home in Templeton. Eclectic. Country. Gluttonous. From mini horses on display at their ceremony and meticously spelled Scrabble tile place cards, to performances from TWO live bands and a brillantly designed vintage “dessert kitchen” with sweets from Two Little Birds Bakery, this was quite the affair! Under the amazing coordination and design talents of Laurel White and her team at Adornments, the million or so small details came together to create a seriously rockin’ wedding.
In between frying pickle chips and assembling chicken n’ waffle appetizers, here are a few highlights…
May 8th, Dana & Allan at Robert Hall Winery
The lovely Dana and Allan exchanged vows at the Mission in San Luis and then made their way to the grandiose Robert Hall Winery in Paso for their reception. A special thank you up front to Amy Wellencamp Photography for so wonderfully documenting the day for us. You rock! Corinne from Panacea added some “flare” with chartreuse napkins and bright green cymbidium orchids to complement their rustic centerpieces. Their family style dinner was followed by an “Ice Cream Sundae Station” from Trumpet Vine and a “Candy Bar” designed by Panacea. Kramer Entertainment got everyone on the dance floor and provided some gorgeous lighting after the sun went down.
April 17, Earth Day Food and Wine Festival
This was our third year participating in the Earth Day Food and Wine Festival at Santa Margarita Ranch. Local vendors and attendees enjoy a day of great food and wine while supporting the environmental efforts of the Central Coast Vineyard Team. Our “Bruschetta Bar” included garlic rubbed toasts with a choice of toppings that included organic tomatoes and herbs from the fine folks at Nature’s Touch Nursery and Harvest.
